248 Aguirre Avenue, BF Holmes, Paranaque
It’s no secret that tacos are one of the best, if not the best, default food choices when you think about what type of meal can sastisfy your tummy following a hard day of work. And while there are tons of great options in the metro, La Chinesca may very well be the greatest one.
Sure, parking is difficult and seats are limited to due to the tight space, but once you get a chance to take that first bite of whatever you order, you’ll be in taco heaven. It doesn’t hurt as well that there are fun drink options to complete your meal.
What to order: Carne Asada, Carnitas, Guisada De Res, Paloma
Soban K-Town Grill
3/F Greenbelt 3, Ayala Center, Makati
K-BBQ has become one of the most popular nighttime options, which is why it’s no coincidence that a bunch of Korean Grill restaurants have opened up over the past few years. Truth be told, Soban in Greenbelt is where you want to go.
Since what they serve at Korean-BBQ places are the same almost everywhere, the secret is in finding a good balance between quality of food and price, and where you can go to get other unique sides not served anywhere else. At this place, you get exactly just that and more.
What to get: Try as much of everything as you can

Another one of the ever-growing list of Poblacion restaurants on the rise, Ebi 10 has barged into the list of reliable Japanese restaurants.

The next time you head to Poblacion – and you better be doing that, because it’s the in-thing right now – make sure to check out this place.

Vatos Urban Tacos
Net Park Building, 5th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig
My favorite discovery of the past year, Vatos Urban Tacos is a fusion of Mexican and Korean foods that were designed to bring out your most inner happiness.
Like many great restaurants, selecting food from the menu is near impossible because everything will sound so damn yummy. And trust me when I say the food itself won’t disappoint.
The ambiance is equally incredible and can serve both as a dinner-time or drinks option. Speaking of booze, you have to vist Vatos more than once in order to take advantage of what they have to offer.
What to get: Honey Tequilla Chicken Wings, Surf ‘N Turf, Barbacoa Pork, Passion fruit Frozen Margarita
